Old rating. Pretty strong IPA. Darker orange. Big citrus punch. Solid caramel malt body that was balanced well with the fruity sweetness and bitterness. Good stuff.

neongolden (680) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2015
(Bottle sample @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Mar 21 2015) Pours clear deep amber with a small white head lingering with lace. Aroma mostly of orange zest, grassy, a little tropical hop resin, sweet caramel malt. Flavour has a lot of caramel and honey sweetness, orange, a bit of resin, bitterness building to moderate levels in the finish, citrus pith and grass, some grain. A little sticky in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, average carb. Didn’t feel that fresh, too malty and sweet, ended up being one note. OK, probably a bit better fresh.

Nsanders (636) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Tap at Longfellow Grill. Dark orange with a creamy off-white head. Grapefruit, white grapes, a little musty, and fresh cut grass. Tastes bitter and with a grassy aftertaste. Body is medium with a foamy feel.

A citrus aroma comes from the glass. Taste: citrus fruity flavor, hoppy malty flavor on the back end. Simply wonderful.

TattooJack (212) - Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Poured from the 4-pack, nice chunky foam good dark look in the glass. Hoppy taste, with fresh fruit. Very easy drinking and delightful, I wish it were a 6-pack. I would give this beer the Lorne Greene award if there were such a thing.

pintbypint (2757) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 20, 2015
12oz brown bottle. Golden with a little haze, big white head. Aromas of caramel and orange/tangerines. Taste has a little caramel, citrusy hops. Modest bitterness and light hoppy aftertaste. Ok brew, could be brighter, was hoping for a bit more of a punch to this one.

dresden (1049) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - FEB 17, 2015
Bottle from Tony. Dark orange with a big head. Citrusy and caramel with a big powerful pine smell. Overly sweet and yet overly bitter, hops are kind of secondary, even galaxy couldnt save this one.

Sampled at tasting. Pours darkish amber with low white head. Aroma with notes of caramel, honey, some citrus and pine. Taste is bitter with a full size body and a lingering soft bitterness in the finish.

dark orange. no head. nose is pretty dank. very astringent overpowering pine cone aroma. almost no malt backbone at all. tons of resent hops. very bitter. galaxy hops are redeeming but this just isn’t a great beer. would love to have it fresher I think.
